“Our project with Nicholls was the demolition of an existing house and a replacement house built in a coastal location. We had never done this before, but right from our first meeting with Richard we could tell that Nicholls pride themselves on excellent quality work and Richard has an admirable can do attitude that means any new concept is of great interest to them and in fact they enjoy working through new challenges. We felt confident they were the right people to fulfill the project and that has proved very much so to be the case.

Nicholls Boreholes expertise was much appreciated as we have a ground source heat pump. Renewable energy technology was important to us, e.g. solar slates and battery storage were included. Home automation technology was used throughout. From a build perspective the coastal location had certain requirements and this was always brought to our attention. Our other main requirement was accessibility, our lift is Nicholls first and they were really proactive in their concern that accessibility should always be at the forefront of the build.

The Nicholls team both on site and in the office were without exception polite, helpful and professional. This attitude in addition to their pride in craftsmanship and attention to detail meant that we maintained an excellent relationship with them even at the end of the build. Snagging has been a lot better than our previous experiences with national house builders. We would happily recommend Nicholls.”
